    54bore replied to a thread Annealing in Lead and Lead Alloys
    I did this with some age hardened 11MM rifle bullets, i went 45 minutes and let cool on their own with no help, it DEFINITELY softened them back up. I read somewhere on here that this is temporary, for instance a bullet at 15BHN will soften to say...

    I agree with you to some degree on camo, I am definitely NOT a paint your face Camo FREAK kinda fella, but i do believe in it, i don't think its the color of the Camo, its the 'broken upness' of it, I have been under 20 yards from Elk MANY MANY...

    No ultra long range with these rfd, Big Game Hammer, i am hoping for good accuracy to 200 yards. Neither of my Fast twist .54s will likely get any farther than 300 yards. The 500 yard and possibly beyond will be done with my .45 and .50 with the...

    rodwha, When you get a chance try the Lee R.E.A.L.s at 100 yards, i am curious how much your group opens up? A good over powder wad is EXTREMELY important in my opinion, seal those gasses tight, and repeatable each shot. If you do good out to 100 i...

    Good Cheer, this will be the bullet i likely stick with for it, if i can get it to shoot good, I have a several other stones to throw in .54, but this is the one i want to use. My Lyman Great Plains Hunter shoots this bullet REALLY good! We shall...

    I shoot a 1:28 twist .50 Cal, and a 1:32" twist .54 Cal. This really depends on if you cast or not? Do you plan to Paper Patch? I am not sure what's available in store bought bullets, as I cast my own and paper patch. If you cast and don't want to...
